In the midst of a dramatic month linked to testing positive for a banned substance, Kamila Valieva of the Russian Olympic Committee posted her worst performance at the Winter Olympics on Thursday. Valieva fell several times and placed fourth in the women’s free skate.

She fell on two quad attempts and also fell or slipped at least four times during the performance. ROC representatives Anna Shcherbakova and Alexandra Trusova won gold and silver medals respectively. Japanese Kaori Sakamoto eventually won the bronze medal due to Valieva’s mistakes.

On Monday, Valieva was allowed to continue competing in the women’s figure skating competition at the Winter Olympics. However, no matter how she finishes in any competition, neither Valieva nor any of her teammates will host the awards ceremony, even if they are declared the winner of the competition. Valieva and the team of the Russian Olympic Committee have already won gold in the team figure skating competition in Beijing.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport allowed Valieva to continue participating in the Beijing Olympics after the hearing took place. The judges ruled that 15-year-old Valieva would not be suspended because of a positive test.

Valieva tested positive for the drug trimetzidine, which is commonly used to treat people with heart conditions, on December 25 in Russian citizens. However, the Swedish laboratory that conducted the test did not release the results until early February, when the Games had already begun.
